We have all heard the saying, “Slow and steady wins the race.” This wise advice is the approach we love to take with our clients at the Bodysmith. You see, helping our members achieve their goals is often about changing habits. Habits got each of us where we are. Changing habits will get each of...

I talk to a lot of people who want to lose weight. And lose weight FAST! But when we are talking about reversing a condition like excessive weight gain that took many years to achieve, I have found that slow and steady will always win the race. Meet Gloria One of my clients—let’s call her...
